METALS-LME copper set for 4th straight fall on trade talks doubts

SINGAPORE, Nov 13 (Reuters) - Copper prices in London are on track for their fourth consecutive decline as investors were disappointed after U.S. President Donald Trump offered no new details on trade negotiations with China.

Three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange (LME) fell 0.3% to $5,850 a tonne by 0249 GMT, while the most traded copper contract on the Shanghai Futures Exchange (ShFE) declined 0.4% to 47,010 yuan ($6,721.38) a tonne, nearing a two-week low.

Trump on Tuesday dangled the prospect of completing an initial trade deal with China "soon," but disappointed the markets as he offered no major policy announcements or details on a venue and date for signing a trade deal with China.
